God’s awesome light show

Picture of totality in West Frankfort

WEST FRANKFORT, IL –  From 11:45 a.m. until 12:45 P.M I monitored the sun every few minutes.  It was incredible to see the sun disappear by increments.

For the first time in all of our lifetimes, we were able to experience a total eclipse.

Again, there will be one on April 8,2024 crossing Southern Illinois

At 1:00 p.m. I was honestly surprised how much daylight there was.  The wind was starting to pick up.

Over the next few minutes by 1:10 p.m. the temperature began to drop by ten degrees.  The crickets started to chirp, and there was a dusk feel.

In the next ten minutes it was pitch black.  I was able to take a quick shot in totality without missing the show.  There was more of a spherical look than I expected.  It was one of the most incredible things I have witnessed in my life.

Images like we witnessed today, scream the majesty and power of an almighty God.
